I am hereby raising the lowly wooden toolbox into the woodworking DIY limelight it deserves among its usually more sophisticated brethren of table saw miter sleds, dovetailing jigs, exotic wood jewelry boxes, planes storage cabinets and the like.
And this is the deal. Post about your dedicated-for-home-use HOMEMADE WOODEN TOOLBOX that would contain mostly hand tools, likely a drill and a few supplies (eg. used sandpaper, small tubes of glue, screws) that you would use to do typical quick fixes and installs like hanging pictures, fixing a loose stair tread, etc. This is not about your workbench storage or custom rolling cabinet of tools from your garage/workshop. This thread might appeal most to small/downsized home owners and apartment/condo dwellers. Heck, even those with any home and a fully loaded garage/workshop off-site will often not have a dedicated wooden toolbox conveniently sitting at home in the closet for doing quick repairs/installs – like me!
I’d like to raise the bar a little on this one though.
Creative and recommended ideas about design/storage or how your toolbox looks/feels would be awesome.
Let the smackdown begin.
